    Hello

    I have just received my meter. After installing batteries (the correct way I triple checked) I pressed the power on button and… nothing happens I tried to press it harder, hold it, press it fast, and the meter is not responding. I tried another set of batteries, no luck. Please help, Ive been waiting for this meter so long and I still cannot use it.

    well I left it alone for 24 hours and I tried again. It turned on! It worked well, then I switch it off. and it is dead again. I cannot switch it back on. Please help, what is wrong with it?

    Thanks for the Reply, Rudy.

    Fortunately, It started working again, so I’ve been using it for a week without an issue and the on-off button is responding again. I will update the support if this problem is back. Thanks!

    I had the same issue with my new meter not turning on. It turned out to be a poor solder joint between the battery clip and the red wire connecting the clip to the printed circuit board. A quick re-solder step and the meter turns on.
